THE REPORT 



OF THE 

PRESIDENT OF QUEEN’S COLLEGE, BELFAST, 

FOR 

THE SESSION ENDING Sire JULY, 1882 . 



TO THE QUEEN’S MOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY. 

May it please your Majesty, 

I have the honour of submitting to your Majesty the following 
Report of the proceedings of Queen’s College, Belfast, for the 
Session 1SS1-2. 

The Matriculation Examination was held at the commence- 
ment of the Session, when 156 Candidates passed, and at the 
same time 26 were admitted ad eimclem from other Univer- 
sities and Colleges, and 15 Non-Matriculated joined the Classes, 
making a total of 197. This shows an increase of nearly 25 per 
cent, upon any previous year. In Session 18S0-81, 151 Students 
entered, being at that time the largest number of entrants since 
the foundation of the College. 

It is important to observe that the increase was chiefly in the 
Faculty of Arts. In Session 1880-1, 48 were enrolled for the 
first time in that Faculty — 45 by Examination, and 3 ad eundem; 
whereas in 1881-2 the numbers were, 72 by Examination, and 
5 ad eundem. 

The aggregate number of Students in attendance in the several 
Faculties during the past Session, was much greater than in any 
previous Session. The numbers were as follows : — In Arts, 177 ; 
Medicine, 364; Law, 23 ; Engineering, II — Total 575, as against 
515 in Session 1880-81. 

The abolition of the Queen’s University, to which all our 
Students belonged, and the establishment of the Royal Univer- 
sity in its place, has rendered a change necessary in the subjects of 
the Matriculation Examination in this College. Hitherto a 
knowledge of Greek was rigidly enforced, hut now, as it is desir- 
able to admit Matriculated Students of the Royal University ad 
eundem, and as that University allows a modern language to he 
taken as an alternative for Greek, we have been compelled, some- 
what reluctantly, to adopt the same course. The Council have 
determined that the subjects prescribed for the Matriculation 
Examination in this College shall be, at least for the present, the 
same as those in the Royal University.

Report of the President 



In my last Report I stated that the answering of the Candidates 
at the Matriculation, and First Year Scholarship Examinations, 
was, on the whole, more satisfactory than in previous years ; and 
I attributed this in some measure to the beneficial operation of 
the Intermediate Education Act upon Schools. At the commence- 
ment of the past Session some advance was again observable, 
indicating better methods of teaching, and more accurate pre- 
paration. There is still, however, much room for improvement. 
The Intermediate Education Act lias undoubtedly given a great 
stimulus to education; but I fear that the wide range of subjects 
in the programme of the Board, and the inducements held out to 
clever pupils to attempt to answer in a large number of those 
subjects, so as to secure a greater aggregate of marks, prevent 
in many cases that careful, systematic, and thorough study of 
fundamental principles and rules which forms the only sure basis 
of sound scholarship. It would, I believe, tend vastly to increase 
the benefits conferred by the Intermediate Education Act upon 
both schools and pupils, were the Commissioners to limit the 
number of subjects allowed in the competition for Exhibitions, 
and to give at the same time a much higher scale of marks for 
very superior answering in each important subject. Want of 
system and thoroughness is what our Professors chiefly observe 
and lament in first year Students. They have been induced to 
aim at too much, to attempt too wide a range of reading, while 
the real groundwork of education has been largely neglected. 
Systematic training in elementary principles requires time and 
concentrated energy, which in the hot race for Exhibitions, and 
Results-fees, neither teachers nor pupils are inclined to devote 
to it. 

It will he seen from Table IV., in the Appendix, that while 
the great majority of the Students were natives of Ulster, a number 
have come from the other Provinces, and a few from other 
countries ; and Table IT. shows that among them were represen- 
tatives of all the religious denominations hi Ireland. 

From the Reports of the several Deans ofResidences, from the 
statements of the Professors who have daily intercourse with the 
members of their Classes, and from my own constant oversight, 
I am able to state that the general conduct of the students, their 
diligence and progress, and the discipline of the College, have on 
the whole, been very satisfactory. 

During the Session, his Excellency, Earl Cowper, Lord 
Lieutenant of Ireland, honoured the College with a visit, and had 
an opportunity of meeting and addressing the assembled Professors 
and Students in the Common Hall. He afterwards inspected the 
Museums, Library, and Class-rooms. His Excellency was pleased 
to express, in highly flattering terms, his great gratification at 
the prosperity of the College, and at the loyal and enthusiastic 
reception given him as the Representative of your Majesty. 

Table VII. contains lists of the Degrees, Diplomas, and Honours 
obtained by Students of this College during the academic year ; 
and from these it will be seen that the College maintains its 
former distinguished position. In addition to the Honours here

S 



enumerated, I think it right to state, that gentlemen who have 
been trained in the College have, during the year, gained, in open 
competition, some of the most valuable scholarships and prizes 
in the Universities of Dublin, Oxford, and Cambridge. 

I feel pleasure in reporting to your Majesty that the Senate of 
the Royal University elected five Professors of this College 
to Fellowships: — John Purser, M.A., Professor of Mathematics; 
C. Duke Yonge, M.A., Professor of History and English Literature ; 
J. D. Everett, M.A., F.E.S., Professor of Natural Philosophy ; John 
Park, M.A., Professor of Logic and Metaphysics ; and Hastings 
Crossley, M.A., Professor of Greek. The Senate also nominated 
three of our MedicalProfessors to the important office of Examiners 
in the University. These appointments I consider highly 
advantageous, not merely to the College, but to the general 
interests of education in the country. Men of distinguished 
scholarship and tried experience have thereby been secured for 
the work of framing and directing the several courses of study 
in the Royal University, and for testing by examination the 
progress and proficiency of the candidates for degrees and honours. 

It is with painful feelings I report the death of two of our 
Professors. 

William Nesbitt, M.A., D.lit., filled the chair of Latin for 
a period of seventeen years with great ability and success. 
He died on the 26th of November. I was fortunately able at 
once to secure the services of Mr. Samuel Alexander, a dis- 
tinguished graduate of Oxford University, who efficiently dis- 
charged the duties till the end of the First Term ; and then, your 
Majesty having appointed Thomas Wilson Dougan, H.A., Fellow of 
St. John’s College, Cambridge, to the vacant Professorship, the 
work of the Session was carried on without break or incon- 
venience. 

T. E. Cliffe Leslie, LL.D., Professor of Jurisprudence and Political 
Economy, died on the 27th of January. Professor Leslie, was a 
brilliant lecturer and accomplished writer, and his death has left 
a blank not only in this College but in the literature of the 
country. By the kindness of Professors M'Kane and Park, the 
courses of lectures which Dr. Leslie had commenced were com- 
pleted ; and now your Majesty has filled the vacant chair by the 
appointment of William Graham, M.A., Author of the 1 Creed of 
Science,” to the Professorship. 

The deficiency of accommodation in the College buildings, to 
which I directed attention in former Reports, has been much 
more severely felt during the past Session than even in previous 
years, owing in part to the great increase in the number of 
Students and in part to the urgent demand for practical instruc- 
tion in Chemistry, Natural Philosophy, Physiology, and Histology. 
The deficiency has now become so pressing that unless new 
buildings and laboratories are immediately provided, the progress 
of the College will be seriously checked, and its efficiency en- 
dangered. I have reason to believe that the Lords Commissioners 
of your Majesty’s Treasury are fully aware of our wants, and 
that the necessary steps will at once he taken to have them 
supplied.

Report of the President, &e. 



The Library, Museums, and Botanic Garden are in excellent 
order. Valuable additions have been made to the Library 
during the year, partly by purchase, and partly by gifts. For 
some of the most important of the latter we are indebted to 
the thoughtful liberality of the Authorities of the British Museum. 
It is gratifying to find that the Library is made use of not merely 
by Professors and Students, but by graduates of the University 
now settled in different parts of Ireland, and by literary men and 
others who are engaged in special departments of investigation. 
The Council are most anxious to encourage such research, and 
thus to make the Library beneficial to the whole community. 

The Natural History Museum is well supplied with valuable 
specimens in the several departments. Great praise is due to the 
energy and scientific skill of the Curator, Professor Cunningham, 
and to numerous friends in India and other countries for their 
generous donations. Owing to want of space the cases are at 
present too much crowded for the purposes of study ; but the 
Board of Public Works has prepared plans for a gallery which I 
trust will soon he erected. 

The Anatomical Museum is in excellent order. Here also we 
are indebted to the kindness of scientific friends. During the 
past Session a beautiful series of microscopical preparations, 
showing in an admirable manner the whole texture of many 
organs of the body, was presented by Dr. Thiersch of Leipzig, to 
Dr. Bedfern, Professor of Anatomy, and by him generously 
handed over to the College. 

The sum of £ 1,512 4s., raised by subscription to establish a 
scholarship as a memorial of Dr. Thomas Andrews, lately Vice- 
President of the College, has been invested in the Public Funds, 
and the proceeds are now available for the purposes for which 
they were intended. 

Another sum of £875 6s., a portion of the bequest of the late 
Lord Blayney, has been given in trust to the Corporate Body 
to found a Blayney Scholarship. 

The residue of the Fund originated by Sir Bobert Peel, Bart., 
has been invested by the Trustees, and the annual proceeds will 
be applied to provide a Peel Medal which will he awarded for 
the most distinguished answering in a prescribed course. 

The Tables contained in the Appendix set forth in detail the 
numbers, religious persuasions, and ages of the Students, the 
number of lectures delivered by each Professor, the receipts and 
expenditure of the College, its Benefactors and their various 
benefactions, and all other matters bearing upon the work and 
state of the College. 

I have the honour to he, 

Your Majesty’s most dutiful servant, 

J. LESLIE POBTEB, President 

Queen’s College, Belfast, 

22nd July, 1882.
